‘May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and trouble avoid you wherever you go’, is one of the many blessings you may hear at Savannah’s Tara Feis Irish Festival. It’s a “family-friendly” – alcohol free celebration of Irish culture for the whole family featuring live stage performances, music, dancing, crafts, food and more. Here you get an opportunity to experience everything Irish from dance to music and food, without the craziness of the Savannah St Patrick’s Day celebration. This festival is visited by many families, about 20,000 plus people show up every year. The Tara Feis festival has been held on the same green strip of land, now Emmet Park, where families from Savannah’s Irish neighborhoods – Old Fort, Frogtown and Yamacraw – used to come to play ball in the early 20th century. This free festival is more about Irish culture and tradition than about the party. The festival is held at Emmet Park (East end of Bay Street) from 11am-5 pm. This event is presented by the City of Savannah’s Cultural Affairs Department.
